Plantations for biomass production of Paulownia OXI are constructed by “Solarni projekti” (Croatia). The company is a sales representative of Bio trее for Croatia, Slovenia and Montenegro and is specialized in building successful Paulownia plantations with an effective yield of biomass.
The company possesses developed know-how for complete business case for construction of plantations.
The innovative approach that is applied is solution for independent power supply of water pumps on irrigation systems on the plantations using solar installations. In this way they ensure independence of the electrical systems of water supply installations from the electricity grid.
This allows building successful plantations in remote locations with difficult or no access to the electricity grid.
In 2014 in the Republic of Croatia SOLARNI PROJEKTI and VR ENBEKON launched their own project on the construction of plantations for biomass production of Paulownia OXI. Have been planted 80,000 plants of hybrid Bio trее OXI on an area of 20 hectares, with a planting density 3000-3500 plants per hectare.
